    Arrow RR 03-09-05 .. Multiple Browse ..

    Ok -- people have been asking for this far too long... so now there is a way you can have as many video/audio folders as you wish, anywhere in ANY drive/pen drive, external drive etc.. changes are listed:

    * Added BROWSE.RRL file support
    * Added "go home" browse feature
    * Fixed DVD issue from version 03-08
    * Fixed some Video Confinement issues
    * Improved embbeding to "cut" single line borders

    Here's how I put this together and at the same time made the Audio CD player work too (for both audio tracks and mp3 CDs):

    -The "go home" feature is done by pressing and holding the "BROWSE" button (the one that simple presses lets you view the selected folder).

    -This BROWSE.RRL file is a simple text file you create and place in ANY of your folders accessible in RR. The format for this file is basically:

    <FULL DRIVE+PATH>;<DISPLAY TITLE>

    For instance, If I made the following BROWSE.RRL file and placed it at my D:\Music\ folder:

    E:\;>CD<
    F:\;>PEN DRIVE<
    C:\Windows\;Windows Folder

    I used the "<" and ">" characters to simply "call attention".
    When I browse that location on my hard drive, RR will display those "options" on the very top of the list. If I wish to borwse any of those locations I simply have to click "browse" on any of them. Since you can't really switch drives with the "GO BACK" and "BROWSE" functions, you can return to your music/video home (set in RRConfig) by pressing and holding the browse button -- which in my case would again show the BROWSE.RRL file and the directory contents.

    You can create as many BROWSE.RRL files as you want, and place as many items you want in them.

    To play Audio CDs, you'll need to add the .CDA extension to your audio files setting in RRConfig (unless it is/was blank).

    This is what I have worked on today...
    Let me know of any still pending issues, I'm not doing a good job on keeping track of bugs lately...

    Guino, I was wondering if this is a bug or not: when you are playing an mp3 and staying in the music screen, the next song that plays does not get highlighted in the list. So when you hit pause >play it starts to play the song that was originally selected. Thanks

    No bug there my friend.. you just need to enable the "List follows song" option in RRConfig.

    EDIT: This is actually called "highlight current playlist song on change" now.

    Can probably add something like that... find a few people to back you up if you want to get it quicker..

    wow i thank you for nice job you are doing...
    i just noticed on radio

    i use usb sound card
    and under radio config showing only sound source from onbord sound card.
    i don't see any usb sound source...
    i plug dlink into linein on usb sound card.
    thus no sound playing.
    and i think line-in plug for winamp would be better solution for radio support
    or do you use this already?
    i don't know just me but
    i use all 5 channels on sound card...
    if radio play through linein source only front speakers play...
    if use line-in plugin through wave all6 speakers play...

    I Would also like this if i could first load all my videos from subdirectories to playlist then shuffle them. Currently in road runner the playlist is the current folder.
